    I want to get an Amorphophallus. Does anybody grow this? I need some suggestions on which species to get. I want one that is under 4ft. and can handle lower humidity. I plan to grow this outside so it'll get enough sun. Which species would be good candidates? If you have any to sell or trade, I'd be interested [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    hi larry
    only just started growing this. I have A.konjac, which is a small grower, and is apparently very easy. got it off a guy in Poland. all I know is that it likes a loamy soil, well watered in summer, dry in winter. quite cold tolerant but not frost hardy.
    hope this helps

    Larry-
    I've got about 7 or 8 of these growing in the backyard, including an Amorphophallus titanum. Most of the voodoo lilies I grow are under 4 feet. Heavy feeders that like moisture in summer, but must remain completely dry in winter. Easy growers that prefer loamy soil. Well worth the effort. Oz

    Aw, that's so cool!! Sorry, I'm just blown away by those pics. Awesome...

    EDIT: judging by the health of the plant, you must have bought/traded it from a quality source (not to mention grown it very well). it would be appreciated, Larry, if you could PM me about where you obtained it. thanks

    DE and larry, that's not an Amorphophallus, which is what larry originally asked about?

    Larry I got a couple of pics of a HUGE Amorphophallus (about 20 feet tall - no flower though ) while in Sumatra. If there is somewhere I can upload them I will post them for you.

    Cheers, Troy.

    yes, yes...Sauromatum

    And Troy, you'll hopefully be posting those pics for *everyone*? just making sure

    This post I just wrote was kind of redundant, but I felt it was necessary!
